SOURCE: sound no picture

I just had the same thing happen to my tv today. I tried taking cables out and putting them back, different antenna, everything. Finally phoned the LG contact number and they are sending someone out early next week to do a software update - free of charge! They were so helpful on the phone and a pleasure to deal with - even gave me a short term fix: turn tv on; unplug antenna, change the channel then plug the antenna back in ... picture is slowy returning using this solution.
I would recommend to anyone with this or a smilar issue to call the customer service line. Big bouquets to LG - I love their products! And their customer service is outstanding!

SOURCE: need some sound to my home theatre system

Hey gr37_98:

1 thing to keep in mind with HT (home theater) systems is that when selecting a particular function that the input to the receiver matches the output to the TV/monitor. Example, you can play dvd's just fine because the HDMI output from the 958 matches the input to your monitor. Many consumers are under the mistaken impression that the home theater receiver can convert the HDMI to some other format, i.e. digital co-ax or optical. This is not the case. To use some other input the receiving device must have the same function & that particular input must be selected in order for the receiver to amplify it.

That being said, when you previously tried the digital co-ax connection did you specially select that input on your HT receiver? If you didn't, the receiver would be expecting to be processing audio from the HDMI input & would ignore the digital co-ax. You may also need to select that output on the monitor in order to active it, which, in most cases, would be odd. I was attempting to access the owners' manuals for these units & decided to respond with basic info hoping to get you up & running. Respond to this post if you have any additional questions.

SOURCE: LG 5010 42" + Xbox360 + DVD RECIEVER/ Surround Sound SET UP HELP!


I need some clarification before we can proceed. Which audio/video cable did you use to connect the 360 & your home theater receiver & TV/monitor? It makes a difference which you use. The HDMI cable would be the preferred one to use. The fact that the receiver only has 1 HDMI connection limits your options for other digital connections. Respond to this post & I can provide additional info. I have found that when responding to someone's question, I have a tendency to provide too much info on the 1st response.

If the Direct TV box is working with other TVs, the problem is in the connection to the TV. In many TVs the automatic sensor works to detect what is being plugged in. In some, it has to be selected through the menu.

Your computer may be sending out a video signal that's too high of a resolution for your TV to display. Try reducing the resolution of the computer video signal.

HDMI XBOX360 Elite -"No Signal"

The connection order can be a key issue as to whether or not the HDMI signals will pass through the system. For best results the receiver should be turned on first, then the source device(s) and then the display. The reason for this has to do with getting the equipment to handshake properly for the HDCP protocol.

If HDMI video will not pass through your receiver, you may with to just connect the xbox using the component cables. Since component will pass through 720p and your TV is 1080i you should expect the same qualtiy and a more crisp picture.
